    With the new magicbands or cards, will children have their own, linked with a parent's credit card? We are going with 19 grandchildren and their parents, but some TS meals will be at different tables. Will they have to sit at the same table as parents?

    Hi, Sherrie!  I want to first say that I think Walt Disney World does an awesome job of keeping track of which kids belong with which parents when it comes time to sorting out the check at the end of a meal.  I've traveled with extended family and friends, and I'm always pleasantly surprised that we all manage to get the right bill at the end of the evening!

    The new magic bands CAN have charging abilities, but you are not required to give access to children to the charging privileges.  What you can do if children are sitting at tables other than their parents is have each family place their order separately, and then everything that family orders gets put on one check.  This may mean a server has to take an order from mom and dad, then leave the table to take orders from the children, but in my experience, it all works out at the end of the day.

    This sounds like an absolutely amazing trip!  I hope you all have many magical moments that become some of your most cherished memories!
